McDonald's is a fast food company. They're everywhere. Everyone is familiar with the golden arches, their fries, and their broken ice cream machines. It's almost hard to imagine at this point, but there was a time when this wasn't the case, when the restaurant was just starting out. One link to the past is the McDonald's in Downey, CA, the oldest McDonald's still in operation. The Downy location was founded in 1953. It lets us see the restaurant, and maybe even the world, as it was in simpler times. This vintage McDonald's shirt, in great condition with light marks from prolonged storage, is a souvenir tee from the Downey, CA location, oldest original McDonald's in the world.
